Pennsylvania Online Poker Expected To Go Live July 15

Pennsylvania joins New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware in allowing residents to play PA poker online!

The wait to play Pennsylvania poker online is over, as the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board gave the go-ahead for PA online casinos and PA online poker to come to the state on July 15. Having to wait ever since a gaming expansion bill that included interactive gaming was approved by the state in Oct. 2017, players of Pennsylvania online poker could finally be able to play poker online as the following online casinos have licenses to offer online poker:

PA Online Poker Ready To Launch Along With Online Casinos In Pennsylvania And PA Online Sports Betting

PA poker online wasn't the only good news that the PGCB released on April 17, as PA online casinos will begin to operate in the Keystone State on July 15. Expected even before that launch date of online casinos in Pennsylvania and PA online poker is PA online sports betting, which looks to make a huge splash as numbers for sports betting in Pennsylvania at their eight land-based PA sportsbooks continue to climb in both total handle and revenue for the state. Rivers Casino PA had the highest sports betting handle for the month of March.

More casinos could join the fray as PA online poker and Pennsylvania online casinos roll out in the state, as 10 of the 13 PA casinos have obtained permits to offer table games and PA online slots, with seven of those 10 offering PA online poker. The individual permits for either online poker, online slots or table games went for $4 million each. Mohegan Sun Casino, Presque Isle Casino and Stadium Casino are offering table games and online slots, but not online poker.

NJ Online Poker Revenue On Upswing In March And Year-Over-Year

While online poker in New Jersey has had its ups and downs over the years, NJ online poker is currently on a small but firm upswing month-to-month in 2019 and when compared to 2018. NJ online poker revenue has gone up two percent annually and has gone up around 5.5 percent from February to March, bringing in $1.9 million in revenue for the month. The success of online poker in New Jersey is being attributed to PokerStars, WSOP and 888Poker under the Caesars license in the Garden State, which also has a partnership with Harrah's Philadelphia Casino. This means the possibility of pooling their customer bases in New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware with Pennsylvania so players in all four of those states could compete against each other at the same online poker tables. Another factor that could boost Pennsylvania online poker is the number of operators in the state, seven, compared to the three that offer online poker in New Jersey.
